From WDCB’s First Light, Sept. 29, 2019: About one year ago, the scientific community lost a unique and brilliant voice. Leon Lederman was much more than the voice for particle physics and the importance of science, he was a teacher, a champion for education, and by all accounts a charismatic character. In this 15-minute radio piece, First Light host Brian O’Keefe visited with Fermilab scientist Herman White and former Fermilab Education Office Head Marge Bardeen.

From pieuvre.ca, Sept. 24, 2019: Une équipe de chercheurs dirigés par Christopher Mauger, dans une étude récemment publiée, avance certaines options pouvant faire en partie la lumière sur cet étrange phénomène et répondre à d’autres questions dans le domaine de la physique fondamentale. Dans le cadre du programme CAPTAIN représentent une première étape importante pour la mise sur pied du DUNE, une installation expérimentale pour l’étude des neutrinos et de la physique des particules.

From Providence Journal, Sept. 25, 2019: Local newspaper promotes the event, which features scientists from Fermilab, the nation’s leading particle physics lab, as well as researchers working with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva. Fermilab Office of Education and Public Outreach Head Rebecca Thompson explains the science behind “Game of Thrones.”

From Penn Today, Sept. 23, 2019: A team of researchers the University of Pennsylvania published results from the first set of experiments that can help answer these and other questions in fundamental physics. Their results are an important first step towards building the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, hosted by Fermilab.

From the World Conference of Science Journalists, Aug. 26, 2019: In this video, Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer participates in a panel discussion on the big questions that remain unexplained today regarding the origin, nature and ultimate fate of the universe. The other panelists are CERN Director-General Fabiola Gianotti, French National Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics Director Reynald Pain, and University of Zürich Professor Laura Baudis.
